Boy Scouts Perform Sunday Service

Boy Scouts Perform Sunday Service

BALLSTON SPA — A ‘Scout is Reverent’ is the 12th point of the Scout Law which each scout strives to live by each day. To demonstrate this character value and the anniversary of Boy Scouts of America, scouting units across the country plan, organize and lead worship at local churches. 

The Boy Scouts of Troop 1 and Cub Scouts of Pack 1 (see photo) led the Sunday service at the Ballston Spa United Methodist Church, which has sponsored the scouting units for 104 years. 

The scouts, ranging in age from 9 to 17 years old, delivered the whole service from prayers, scripture readings, reflections, music and the morning sermon.  

Eagle Scout Stephen Larson (third from left) delivered the sermon: “The Gift of Scouting,” which reflected on his journey through scouting and the development of his faith and character as a young man.
